Event Description

BCO Bikes, Bats & Brews - all on Buffalo Bayou!

**Our Houston Bat colony has suffered a devastating loss of the colony at Waugh bridge.  Volunteers helped rescue bats during the flood and the bats are working to rebuild their homes with help from some local volunteers. BCO donated to BatWorld.org last week.  For the ride this Saturday evening we'll be collecting checks from anyone who would like to donate to the TWRC Wildlife Center.  In addition to the bats, there have been 1000's of displaced wildlife that TWRC is working to relocate & save.  If you would like to make a donation please make your check out to TWRC and bring it with you.  You can also check the WISH LIST and bring supplies from the list and we will drop them off on Sunday.  Thx.

 Meet at 7:15 PM in back of the Fonde Community Center’s Parking Lot behind Sabine Lofts along the bayou located at 110 Sabine St, Houston, TX 77007 – Meet at 7:15 and roll out at 7:45

Houston, a bayou runs through it!  Buffalo Bayou runs right down the middle of our city and is home to over a quarter of a million Mexican Free tail Bats.  These bats live under Waugh Street bridge and come out at sunset to dine on our local mosquito population – Go Bats, Go!

 

Plus, we now have a beautiful, well-paved path that runs the length of the bayou from Shepherd Street bridge all the way to downtown and back.  It makes for a wonderful evening cycle.  Add to that our stable of BCycles (rental bikes stationed all over the central city) and you have the makings for an awesome evening bike ride!

 

Join Bayou City Outdoors as we lead the group for an easy 6 – 8-mile ride stopping for about 30 minutes to watch the bats pour out and then onto to downtown for the adventurous.  We’ll stop at a local watering hole and be back by 10:30.  If 10:30 is past your bedtime, we will be stopping at our parking lot on the way downtown to drop off our early birds.

 

What you need to know:

- All types of bikes welcome, cruisers, hybrids, and mountain bikes make for a little easier city ride.

- Bcycles are available around our start – they will sell out so check their site, download the “where’s a BCycle app” and pedal over.  https://houston.bcycle.com/station-map

- Helmets required (we will have a few loaners for BCO members at the start)

- Lights & reflectors are a really good idea...
